There Goes The Neighborhood? –
August 10, 2018 – After weeks of heated protest, a Harlem community has convinced the city and the state to block a drug treatment clinic from opening in a multi-million dollar brownstone. Argus Community Incorporated bought the building at 147th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue for $4.3 million last August, but neighbors said no one knew it would be become a methadone clinic. Then Argus told residents at a community board meeting in May that the building would be used for drug treatment, counseling, relapse prevention, assisted treatment and random toxicology.
